Orthopaedic Fellowship In Australia
Depends . . .: Best specialist depends upon who you ask. Also depends upon your insurance (or are you willing to pay out of pocket). Also depends upon how far you're willing to drive (northern california is a rather large geographic area). Start by looking thru insurance book or their website. Then ask your family doc (plus family & friends) who s/he likes. Finally, consider academic centers & athletic teams. ...Read more
I am looking for an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in knee surgery in Boca Raton and who takes AARP Medicare.
Obamacare: In fla. Especially w/ aging population more and more ors are retiring or not accepting ' new' medicare pts. This is unfortunate and related in part to reduced payments for physicians who specialize in hip and knee reconstructive surgery .I would start by asking your local hospital administrator which ors on staff does knee replacements. Best of luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Probably: There are many surgeons that perform double bundle acl reconstructions. However, since there are many ways to perform them, we do not know which method is better, or whether it is any better than an anatomic acl. Perhaps a better question is whether a double bundle acl reconstruction is right for you. I perform both, but i still question whether it is better. I am in los angeles though. ...Read more

I am looking for an orthopedic surgeon near phx, az who uses the medial rotating knee by matortho for a tkr. Nearby states are ok.
Internet: You should be able to find someone by looking on the company website physician locator. Most companies have that.

It is ok to look for a certain product but do not get hung up on it but find the right surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ankle Specialist: I would check with the medical schools in each of the cities. Chicago and st. Louis have multiple medical schools. In the orthopedic department look for the doctor listed as foot and ankle. This at least means that he or she is fellowship trained ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Theoretically yes...: In practice, few if any physicians can endure 11 years of training and resident pay. Additionally, most program directors would frown upon the switch in direction as a sign of personality imbalance and/or unpredictability and would be reluctant to hire you after the first fellowship without a very good reason. Given that both subspecialties are now quite competitive, i advise against trying this. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Revision rhinoplasty: You have to research and find the board certified surgeons you feel that you have a good rapport with. Some names that you should look at are Drs Solieman and Litner, as well as Dr. Frankel. Also, don't forget that there are non surgical options as well for nasal contour correction.

How important is it that my orthopedic surgeon is fellowship trained? How do I chose the best doctor for my surgery?
Depends on surgery: First and foremost, you should make sure that your surgeon is board certified (check www.Abos.Org). Depending on the type of surgery you are having, it may not be necessary for the surgeon to have completed a fellowship. There are many "bread and butter" surgeries that any orthopaedist can do. The more complex the operation, the more important that the surgeon has had extra training. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
What is the difference between an orthopedic surgeon w a foot & ankle fellowship & a podiatrist & which is better for ankle alignment issue?
That all depends on: Who you ask. You didn't state the podiatrists credentials. Hence, even as a podiatrist i'd give the nod to the orthopedist with the fellowship training in foot and ankle. If the podiatrist completed a rearfoot certified program or the likes they would be on equal footing.....(no pun intended.). ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
What is the I deal weight for a 5ft 5 Australian female aged 22 years old? Is BMI a good measure to rely on?
Can't tell, but...: A starting point is 130 lbs. A lot depends on a person's body build. Some are naturally very thin, others thick or big-boned, but most people are somewhere in between. "Australian" is a location, so that doesn't help either, as many different types of bodies are in Australia. BMI is helpful if a person is of average musculature. If very muscular, a perfectly fine person will have a high BMI. ...Read more

Suffixes to names: Masters degrees and phd degrees are non-medical degrees. They are "graduate" degrees (in anything of interest to the graduate student), meaning they are done after getting a bachelor's degree in college. A board is an organization (has rules for membership) that in medicine is usually for each specialty. A fellow would be a doctor who has been recognized as achieving the criteria set by a board. ...Read more

How effective is the flu shot in the US? 10% this year? Is that an exaggeration because Australians don't normally get the flu shot. I am Australian. We only vax 10% of our kids. Is it possible the shot will be more effective in US since more get it.
Varies yearly: At any point at least 6 strains of flu circle the globe & air travel mixes it easily. Each season they pick the top 3-4 strains in the world and put it into production. More strains & it would weaken the strength for individual strains.US protection rates range from 20-60%/yr based on chance. I've had normal unvaccinated kids spend a month in the ICU near dying from the flu. I respect it. ...Read more
